I paid another visit to the Arts District Brewing Company in downtown LA and tried their Botanical Gardener English Pale with Gin Botanicals beer. This was one of the more interesting beers I’ve had so far. I’ve always liked beers finished off in whisky barrels so a beer with a gin flavor intrigued me. The aroma is sweet with a gin scent. The flavor is bready and cracker like with a hint of gin flavor. It’s a great drinkable beer by itself. I didn’t have it with any food, but I think it may pair well with salty and/or spicy food since it’s on the sweet side. Everyone I know who has tried it likes it, so it’s a winner for Arts District.
